when it comes to price, one should also take the older SX230 into account. It is available here for EUR 150, almost 1/3 of the price of the S110! The SX260 has some extras compared to SX230 (e.g. even bigger zoom range), but the image quality is very similar.

The major advantage of S100/S110 is that it tries to get the best possible image quality out of a pocketable camera: bigger sensor, brighter lens, RAW format etc. Maybe the SX230/260 is 'good enough' in image quality, but if you look at the corners of the image or do low light shots, the S100/110 will be better. But not 3 times better than SX230
